Writing Tip Wednesday – Settings and Series

JA Huss

Welcome to Video Five of The Perfect Story. In this video we’re going to talk about world building and how to plot a series arc. Sorry that it’s a week late. Lots of cool shit going on right now for me – but all of it requires my time so WTW had to wait. I will try and release the next video (Pacing and Suspense) next week on schedule, but can’t make any promises.


If you’re just coming in on this series and haven’t yet seen the previous videos they are linked below.

And if you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll answer your question as soon as I see it.

  1. Julie – I’ve been following this series as well as the Marketing Strategy series and I’m not sure what I enjoy more… the info or your no-bull**** way of presenting. You’re a very talented author. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  2. Not sure Julie why you say that you would plot the individual books in a series first. Shouldn’t you have the grand question (series arc) plotted out first and then move into the individual book plots so that you can be assured that you are doing the individual plots with the grand question in mind? Again, really great and provoking video. I’ve been waiting for this one. Thank you.

    1. If I said it that way, I didn’t mean it. lol. You should definitely have the series plot in mind before you start. At least a very general outline.

  3. Thanks again for a wonderful and informative video. Fingers crossed on buying the house! This gave me some great ideas for things I want to try in the future. Can’t wait for the next one!!!
